The folks at Froose teamed up with Mom Central to get some feedback on their products. I volunteered our family to be Taste Testers.
Here's our take on Froose. First, a little about the product...

* Whole organic grains and fruit

* Naturally low in sugar
* Organic rice syrup, a complex carbohydrate (which means no sugar highs and no empty calories.)

The Taste Testers...
First up - Perfect Pear
Me - It has the consistency of nectar. (Which I can't stand.)
The Commander - It is bitter.
The Boy - It tastes like real pears, but not like juice.
The Verdict - No thanks.
Next - Playful Peach
Me - Ugh.
The Commander - ::: Nose Wrinkles :::
The Boy - It tastes okay at first, but then it leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
The Verdict - No Thanks.
Lastly - Cheerful Cherry
Me - Hmmmmmm. Not too bad. I can't stand artificial cherry flavor. If I inadvertently pop a cherry Jolly Rancher into my mouth, it will shoot out with much more force than it went in. Cheerful Cherry does not have a fake cherry taste! It also doesn't have that nectar thickness to it like the other two or the graininess (from the rice flour I'm guessing).
The Commander - Refuses to participate any further.
The Boy - Well, if it is the only thing to drink, I will drink it, but I wouldn't want it as a snack.
Verdict - I was the only flavor I finished.
I would recommend at least giving Froose a try. Your kids may not be as picky as my kid. Let me know if you do.
